After the crazy controversy with her husband, Donald Sterling, Los Angeles Clippers co-owner Shelly Sterling said she fully supports the decision by the National Basketball League and the team to undertake a joint search for a new Chief Executive Officer for the franchise.
“I spoke with Commissioner Adam Silver this week to tell him that I fully supported his recent swift and decisive action,” said Ms. Sterling. “We also agreed at that time that, as a next step, both the league and the team should work together to find some fresh, accomplished executive leadership for the Clippers. I welcome his active involvement in the search for a person of the utmost character, proven excellence and a commitment to promoting equality and inclusiveness.
“As a co-owner, I am fully committed to taking the necessary steps to make the Clippers the best team in the NBA,” she said. “That has been my aspiration ever since 1981.”
